College of Charleston’s Daniel Aldrich beat Georgia Southern’s Victor Roache in front of 20,578 people at the 2011 TD Ameritrade College Home Run Derby on Saturday at TD Ameritrade Park Omaha. CBS televised the event nationwide on Sunday afternoon.
Aldrich and Roache tallied 10 and four home runs, respectively, in the first two rounds to advance. In the final round, all home runs were taken off the board and both players received eight outs per at-bat. Aldrich, a third-team All-American as a redshirt freshman this spring, opened the final round by hitting four out of the park during his appearance. With seven outs and no home runs, Roache hit back-to-back homers before recording his final out of the event.
The TD Ameritrade College Home Run Derby ended with the 27th annual Omaha World-Herald fireworks display.
